Considering pool size when planning to install a pool is a significant issue for a homeowner because the size alone affects many factors in home improvement. These factors include the availability of spare space intended for the pool, the decking, and patios and other considerations around the pool, the buying, the actual building, maintenance, and lastly the enjoyment you can benefit from utilizing the space.
The question is: what pool size should you get? The answer to this question stems more issues that will make you ponder on other considerations so that you can squeeze in the pool you want and the beautification of the surrounding space. What is more important is that the space allotted for the pool will not touch or do a major renovation on the house itself.
Since the budget is out of those strings of questions, the size of the pool you want should meet all your objectives why you wanted the pool in the first place. The key is that before you decide to buy a pool, list down the reasons for building it.
- Why do you want a pool?
- Who are the people to use the pool?
You can no longer beg on space if you can answer these questions:
- Have you had enough space for the patio?
- What other things you would like to add to the patio? (An outdoor kitchen is an excellent complement for this.)
- Do you plan on putting some furniture in this yard?
- How about added barbecue place or spa or garden landscape?
Family size matters
The size of your family determines the size of your pool in some way or another. If you have a big family, the tendency is more people are going to use the pool. Consider your relatives, too? Are you an extended family who loves to invite cousins and aunts? If so, you should have thought of getting a bigger size pool. Are you the outgoing type who connects with friends often or invite them over your place? If in case your sons and daughters are adults who have their own families too, how about your grandkids?
How about members of the family with mobility issues? Is the pool for their ailing health? These household members play a big part in your decision to determine the size of your pool.
What shapes currently exist?
Pool shapes vary. The most common shapes of a pool are rectangular, round, and the traditional bean shape. But with the availability of different pools according to types, some of them have limited shapes, such as the fiberglass pool. With concrete and vinyl, you can customize the shape as long as it fits your yard.
Your pool size can only be decided if you have determined the type, your budget, family size, and physical restraints surrounding your home. If you have long planned this pool project, then the next thing to keep in mind is to ensure that pool users will enjoy the most of their summer getaway.
